Native Women’s Law School Experiences

Reflections, Truth-telling and Calls for Change



We held a significant event highlighting the unique experiences of Native Women in the legal field and their experiences in law school. Native Women who are tribal citizens often bring a perspective not shared by other women of color. Panelists shared personal statements reflecting their perspectives on the law school experience.
